If everyone in Vancouver discarded one razor cartridge a week it would equate to approximately 2497 tonnes per year – that’s equivalent to 379 garbage trucks. That’s just Vancouver! You can imagine how quickly that number grows when you consider all of Canada, North America or even the world. A seemingly tiny object we use briefly and toss away has dire consequences when you consider the global scale. Our solution:

the safety razor

why switch to a well kept safety razor?

• a single sharp blade provides a close shave, while reducing irritation

• weighted handle allows you to shave without applying any pressure, again, reducing irritation

• occurrence of in-grown hairs is dramatically reduced

• can be used with a moisturizing shave oil (shave & moisturize simultaneously)

• razor is made of solid brass and designed to last a lifetime

• razor and blades are plastic free

• blades are recyclable

• packaging of both blades and razor are recyclable

• replacement blades are a fraction of the cost (we sell them for $0.70 vs. multi-blade cartridges that cost between $3-7)

• although initially more expensive, after only two years, you will save at least $25 (the more you shave, the more you save)

• after five years that number increases to over $145

The safety razor may seem intimidating at first, but we promise in practice it really isn’t. We have instruction on how to set up your safety razor as well as how to shave. If you’re not in the mood for reading, check out our videos below.

“The BEST razor ever!!! An enjoyable shaving experience resulting in the smoothest skin. Love that it’s practically zero waste – I’ll have this amazing razor my whole life!!”
“I’m so happy I made the change. I also adore the fact that this razor isn’t sparkly and actually looks like it’s owned by a grown woman! Getting this razor was my very first step in a journey to a more sustainable and considered lifestyle. I also love, love, love that the razor is sent in a cardboard box, with a wax seal(!), wrapped in craft paper, with a hand written address. It was amazing to receive something that didn’t have any plastic packaging, and that a real human had touched and taken the time to address! I’m also excited that I was able to support a local business and support independent business women…”
“Love the color! Great shave as well 😃 I would recommend!”
